    Here is an amp I just cAme across,

    And it’s saying rms , which is continuous power of 307watts
    Now, as I read further it goes to 4 ohms

    Since I’m running a single 8ohm 300 watt 4x10 cab, wouldn’t that drop to 180 watts ? Would I be under powering my cab ?

    It’s been a struggle getting this cab up and running for me .. ughhhhhhh

    Cheers and blessings

    There is no such thing as underpowering a cab; you should be fine.

  3. So long as you don't clip your amp in an effort to get to a volume level that isn't available . . . Having said that MAG amps require you to drive the pre to get a decent volume level. Use your ears as well as the VU meter, if you hear it distorting then turn the preamp down. Otherwise you'll be fine.

    That would be overpowering a cab IMO ;).

    AFAIK, a 300w Ashdown will run around 220w into 8 Ohms.

    They do have Manuals on their site, so you can search for the appropriate one.

    I have a MAG 300 2x12 combo, the book states 330w into 4 Ohms, 220w into 8 Ohms.

    Should be pretty loud into the 410, based on the 410 you have. I wouldn't worry too much that it is an 8ohm cab, there are other things that effect overall volume just as significantly as resistance.
